TFA attends Techtextil USA 2019

Toray Fluorofibers (America), Inc. recently joined Toray group companies in attending Techtextil USA 2019 held in Raleigh, NC. This event is the only trade show in the Unites States dedicated to technical textiles and nonwovens. TFA focused on its BOGU fabric developments at this show. BOGU is a Japanese word for Armor, and these fabrics really live up to the name. Whether it is Fire Barrier, Moisture Vapor Control, Chemical Splash, Particle Barrier, Friction Mitigation, or some other Innovative characteristic, BOGU by TFA has you covered. Our fabrics are used in many different industries to meet these needs. One of the highlights of the show was the developmental Fire Barrier that TFA is working to introduce into different industries. This fabric is a lightweight breathable fabric that can transform into a fire smothering protective barrier. We had a lot of potential customers stop by and request technical data for this new development. We are excited to see how this fabric can impact different industries. Another highlight of the show was our original BOGU fabric that was designed for the Molten Metal Industry. Some of the experts of this industry came to us to ask for some assistance in improving the jackets that were being worn. We were able to address a handful of problems with the jackets and provide a truly unique solution that has made a big impact in this industry. That is a perfect example of how the TFA team works. When presented with problems or issues, the TFA team uses our technical expertise to help you solve those problems. Our next stop will be the Techtextil Frankfurt 2019 at Messe Frankfurt in Germany. This event begins May 14 and ends May 17 of 2019. We invite you to come visit us at this event and allow our team to innovate for you.
